On May 13th, Club Carlson will be turning their Twitter account into a private 24-hour party that they are calling #HashtagHotel. During their Twitter “party,” they will give away Gold Points, Elite Status and other travel items such as luggage, noise-canceling headphones and cameras. They will also give participants the chance to chat live with travel experts to get “tips, tricks and insight on how to get the most out of your travels.” In advance of the “party,” the first 15,000 people who connect using Twitter and follow @ClubCarlson will receive 1,000 bonus Gold Points to add to their account.
